on defense. >> finally, military. the president's re-elected, you'll see dramatic cuts to our military. the secretary of defense said these would be even devastating. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> if you're like me, you realize the general dynamics is at the fulcrum of both of these issues. if president obama is going back to that 2009 rhetoric, orders for gulf stream jets could be hammered. when you think of big defense programs that could be boosted by a romney presidency, go no further than general dynamics. you can see a real hit to earnings if the budget cuts become a reality. romney is unintentionally green lighting lockheed martin and grumman. now about half way into the debate romney gave us a fabulous short idea with this clip. >> you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks into solar and wind to solyndra and tesla and i had a friend who said you don't just pick winners and losers, you pick the losers. >> tesla relies on the kindness of the government. that kindness will be over if the white house gets a new occupant. i suggest immediately buying tes

cliff. we could see major cuts in defense spending. given it gets 70% of its sales from the department of defense you can see why people would be nervous. however, i think those worries might be baked into the stock at those levels. it might be exaggerated. plus xls sports a juicy 4% yield. even if the worse does happen they're paying you to wait for washington to sort itself out. the other thing it represents a niche area within the budget. it's not one of those big old cold war programs that they have. i don't know if we should even be that worried. among the other things the company makes is highly secure communication systems, energy analysis, warfare systems, night vision goggles. it also has an information technical side where they do everything from aircraft traffic management for the faa and networks. that's probably less sensitive to the budget cuts we're all so worried about. last quarter was quite strong. if we don't fall off the fiscal cliff this could be the right stock to own. even if we do smash into the fiscal retaining wall, trading at six times next year's earnings. i

toss to it. lest i'm worried about one defensive back out there and that's the chart which indicates that union pacific won't be able to hold on to the ball. otherwise i'll keep the ball myself. maybe dump it off into cash. remember, you don't always need to pass it. the bottom line, i have now completed my check down of fourth quarter opportunities based on the third quarter and i've limited it to one player -- the wide receiver that's union pacific. i'll go to him to pick up a quick six points or maybe more. after the break i'll try to make you more money. >>> coming up, war on the web? the tech giants have been locked in a battle for search supremacy but after poaching one of google's top guns is it finally time to say yes to yahoo!? cramer decides. >>> later industrial strength? prologis is at the center of the global supply chain operating a portfolio of distribution centers, warehouses and commercial real estate around the world. tonight, cramer is talking to the ceo to get a real read on the economy just ahead. >>> all coming up on "mad money." this is rudy. his morning starts

understands the job of the presidency. he put barack obama on the defensive, or he should be, given his horrific record on the economy and on national security. i think he will do that. i think he will be tough with the president. i don't think the president will react particularly well to that because i don't think the president gets people who are very tough with him very often, and i think that interplay i think will be the key moment of the night. >> you see more people optimistic about the economy. you see the president's poll numbers improving with regard to handling the economy. yet you still believe he's quite vulnerable. the polls are tightening. why and where? >> look, i think fundamentally the american public realize that barack obama has failed in his transformation of america. he came in, you know, with very lofty goals and saying that he was going to do all these things. he hasn't done any of them. the economy is in worse shape, the unemployment rate is in worse shape. national securitywise we're much more vulnerable. things are falling apart around the world in very key a
